    Girl on a Wire started out really strong I cared about the characters, I felt my heart speed up during the tense scenes, I didn t want to put the book down.And then, the ending came And it was pretty much a Scooby Doo moment where the Bad Guy just explains Why He Did It I gave it...

    Damn This was much better than expected, but it still left me wanting .It did a lot of things right, especially in regards to Jules and her character arc, and it didn t fall into any of the gross YA tropes I brace myself for when I read a new author The problems I had were metaphysical Because while it was good, I knew the entire time reading that it could be better That was constantly going through my head I like this, but good god it would be fantastic with a little oomph This book takes place in a circus but had very little of the atmosphere or energy one would...

    4 StarsFull Review I knew I wanted this book as soon as I saw it because CIRCUS I absolutely love circus And one of the best things about this book, as opposed to other circus books, was that the author really delved into the descriptions of the acts and made the practices and performances an integral part of the story rather than just using the circus as a backdrop.Not only that, the descriptions of the wire walking and trapeze not even of what skills the performers did but rather of how they carried themselves and what was going through their minds were so beautifully written and somehow felt both real and surreal all at once, which was just kind of perfect.The way he moved was enough, so easy that everyone watching believed gravity had given up on trying to keep him tethered to earth He simply walked on air.I also appreciated the descriptions of Jules s costumes because they sounded gorgeous and because getting into costume is just as much a part of performing as the rest And I couldn t help but smile at the part about her getting ready in the nondescript women s restroom because anyone who s ever been a performer of any kind circus, gymnastics, drama, dance, etc can relate I can t tell you how many times I ve done that, and I love that it was mentioned because it s always struck me as an in...

    Spoilers This book was definitely entertaining I loved the look into the circus life I think I m on a circus kick and I loved the strength of the main character It kept my curiosity, stressed me out when she was on the high wire, and made me want to see what would happen However, my one disappointment was with the ending The story built up so well, asking questions about magic and who had it in for them, etc that I was expecting a epic of a conclusion Instead, the story was concluded in all of two pages with no feeling of satisfaction or fulfillment Novio wasn t deeply connected to the earlier conflict, so it felt kind of false that he was the one waging the battle In fact, he was so separate from the conflict, that I felt the antagonist had to be Kat, the only one around form the original conflict...

    Reading this book I realized that I know way about circus life then I thought I did Since Water For Elephants I have noticed a lot of books are using the circus as a whimsical setting for their novels and this knowledge seems to be rubbing off on me I think that s one of the reasons that, although I enjoyed this book, I found myself comparing it to a lot of other stories and it ended up losing some its magic.Jules Maroni is a high wire walker just like her father She s been performing for as long as she could stand on the wire and Jules wants to be just like her high wire walking hero, Bird Millman Early in the novel Jules convinces her family to join the Cirque American despite the presence of the Maroni s rival family, The Flying Garcia s.I liked this old family rivalry and all the secrets that it held It gave the story a fantastical feel I m also a total sucker for curses, tarot cards, and other sorts of magi Initially the mystery and the secrets behind the rivalry of the Marioni s and Garcia s drew me in But I was able to figure out everything around 60% in to the story So the ending felt ver...

    i have a lot of thoughts that are tangential to this book, so 1 i don t understand how LITERALLY NO ONE IN THE BOOK commented on the fact that these two families who hated each other had kids about the same age who were LITERALLY NAMED ROMEO AND JULIETTA, even after they were caught sneaking around and making out.2 i was trying to figure out why i was so unbothered by the problems in both this and the paper magician, and then i realized that i probably just really miss reading i ve been doing mostly audiobooks this year, and that s nice, i like the audiobooks, i like experiencing the stories a different way, but jesus lord i fucking love reading i also love having hands that can hold my phone or kindle or GASP an actual book long enough for me to read it, WHAT A REVELATION 3 i saw this author at dragon con, and she talked about this book for a bit and i wish there had been of the things she talked about i wish we had seen of jules obsession with old glamour, for instance for someone like that, she shouldn t have to come out and SAY that she finds cell phones and texting inelegant, that should be obvious.4 ireally loved the romance...

    Dnf 10%.Really don t have any desire to keep on with this it lacks magic and is missing big worldbuilding opportunities Was a freebie so I m moving on No rating as I didn t get far enough to have enough of an opinion Not terrible though, for the record Too many books, too little time ...
